S & S Sketch #159

Good Sunday (Snowy) morning to all of you.  I hope those of you in the northeast are all fairing well.  We lost power for 18 hours and got just about 28" of snow in our yard with drifts over 4 feet, but all is well.  Today my card is for the Sketch Challenge over at Stars and Stamps. We have Carol's gorgeous card for inspiration today.  I kind of went off  the grid a bit with my design, but I'm kind of pleased with the outcome.

This is a Gina K Stamp that I colored with Copics and added black chunky glitter to the flower centers.  I sponged the image with SU's Certainly Celery and edged it with a Gold Gel Pen before removing it from the SB die.    I double punched a MS punch to come up with my strip.  The paper is a long ago designer paper from SU.  I decided not to go with a sentiment on this one as I thought it could be used for several different occasions.  I think that will do it for me for today.  I will see you again later on in the week.

S & S Sketch #158

Hello, I've missed posting for the past couple of weeks and I apologize for not commenting either.  I am filling in "full time" at work for about a month and I have also had the world's worse cold which has taken up residence in my lungs for the past week.  I'm so tired from coughing I don't have the energy to do a thing, so I do hope you will all try to forgive me not commenting on your blogs.
My card today is a real quick one I did for the Sketch Challenge over at Stars & Stamps.
I decided to just hit my clear block with Distress Ink and water and then I stamped my SU image in black and clear embossed it.  As you can see I decided not to go with a sentiment on this one.  I also went with 4 corner brads rather than two in one corner.  The back ground is embossed with the Sizzix Swiss Dot folder.  I just noticed that I need to sand the Very Vanilla background piece to clean up the edges a bit before it goes to OWH.    That will do it for me today, I hope to get to commenting now before I head off to the sofa for the night.  See you all next weekend probably.  Another busy week coming up and something planned for each night of the week, so I'm having trouble seeing where I can fit crafting in, but I will try.  I wish you all a terrific week ahead and thanks so much for stopping by today.
